Out of Character: GH

I am not sure I like or understand the direction of the writing for GH's Lucky and Elizabeth. This is a couple that presumably reconciled months ago, yet we have seen very few scenes where the two of them have been together. I am also not sure I like or understand how they are being written as individuals. I was always under the impression that Lucky was basically a decent guy but lately every time he is on screen he comes across as kind of a jerk. I first noticed this when he openly laughed at Spinelli just before his performance at Jake's. This just seemed unnecessary to me and totally out of character. Lucky's unusual behavior continued this week when he and Ethan made the impromptu decision to beat up Dante because he was talking to Lulu, laughing and giving each other high fives the entire time as if they were high school bullies. Never mind the fact that Lucky is a police officer and could face serious consequences if he were charged with assault. I guess he momentarily forgot that fact or just thought the rules did not apply to him, either way this is not consistent with Lucky's past behavior, his addiction to pain pills aside. Then there is Elizabeth who after months of trying to make a relationship with Jason work decided that it was not worth risking her sons' safety for and ultimately reunited with Lucky. Now she has all of a sudden developed this strange flirtation with Nikolas, Lucky's half brother. I'll admit that the idea of a Nikolas and Elizabeth pairing is intriguing especially given the fact that Emily was Elizabeth's best friend, but this storyline seems to have come out of nowhere. However, what bugs me the most is the fact that Nikolas and Elizabeth are acting so nonchalant about their attraction to one another. Prior to Lucky and Elizabeth's quasi-reunion, Nikolas and Elizabeth shared a kiss to make Rebecca and Lucky jealous, but much to their surprise they enjoyed it. And earlier this week the two found themselves alone at Jake's talking about that kiss and the possibility of future kisses. Granted, they were drunk and obviously alcohol impairs one's judgement, but it surprised me that there did not seem to be even a small part of them that thought about how their actions could affect Lucky, not to mention Elizabeth's kids.

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.

Guiding Light alum Morgan Englund (Dylan Lewis) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund a music video for a song he wrote called "Homeward Bound (A Firefighter's Song)", a fitting title and song for the actor who has worked as both a firefighter and paramedic. 

Englund is hoping to raise $10,000 for the creation of the video, which will be directed by Andrea Shreeman. So far $3,199 has been donated to the campaign with a month left to go. Numerous perks are up for grabs for those wishing to contribute to the video's funding. $5 will get you a thank you shout out on social media from Englund, while the biggest perk, at $1500, will earn you an executive producer credit and a VIP visit to the set.
